Resilience is the word of the day at the Rockefeller Foundation

According to Strategy+Business, Rodin has adopted the concept of resilience as a core focus of the Rockefeller Foundation. She is deploying the philanthropic organization’s US$4.2 billion in assets to promote and develop the resilience of cities and organizations, preparing for crisis situations and promoting inclusive economies.

In a world of change and conflict “the capacity of any entity…to prepare for disruptions, to recover from shocks and stresses, and to adapt and grow from a disruptive experience” becomes even more important.
